Trainer Prices

Recommended Posts

2 DA GILLS

I plan to do more specific research on the subject, but I was curious about general prices. My 3 year old Griffon has a few areas that need polishing. I was considering sending him to a professional for a few months this summer. Work load this summer will leave me very little time for training and I really want him to take that next step as a hunter.

Here is the list that needs polishing:

1) Steady to flush and shoot

2) Duck retrieves through decoys

3) Tracking on command

If I sent him to a trainer for 2-3 months, what would an average price tag be? Not looking for price quotes, just a ball park idea of the costs.

Thanks.

I have been working my 10 month Griffon at Pine shadows in Brainerd MN and am very pleased with the whole program... Morgan and Mark work with all breeds both retrievers and pointers even though they breed springers...

Thanks for the info, but I should clarify. I am not looking for any trainer names. I am just curious on a ball park figure on what it would cost to send my dog to a good trainer for 2 or 3 months. What is an average cost per month? $500? $1000? Does that include birds?

I have never used a trainer, so I do not have the slightest idea on the cost.

Thanks.

Around $800 to $850 per month would be normal and that includes boarding and birds...

I hope this helps.. Most good breeders/trainers post thier prices on their we sites..

I hope this helps...

      Thanks Cliff for your Pike River deteriorating ice reports and pics . I. Really want to show my wife the hatchery when the action is really happening this year , I would assume you will be right on that when this happens , is there any way that you can give a shout out on here as to just when this scenario is happening up there . With the warmer temps being quite steady now , I would think the run will be rather strong this year when things get going ..

      I got the 4 smaller ones the other day. They are a little over 2" long and paid only $6.64 total to my door.  The quality seem pretty good, we shall see once I put them to some use!

      Thanks Leech! Ya you need a life jacket in a kayak. I have mine behind my seat, but Yes I should be wearing it.

      Nice video! Life jackets not needed in Yak's?  Just asking.

      Cigar guy, you got a good deal. They look like size 7 which is what I use the most for summer walleyes. Fleet Farm had all Rapalas 25% off last week so I stocked up.  I've used them a lot in the last 2-3 years.  If you fish them on rocks... you will lose some.  I try not to use them over the real bad snaggy stuff but sometimes I still do and usually end up losing one.  It takes a little practice, but they work well when you get it down.

      Funny, I first heard of this on LOTW also about 8-10 years ago.  They're tasty but honestly I often forget about doing it.

      Finally warm weather has arrived in Minnesota and I decided to hit the river for the first trip of the year in the Kayak. Felt good to be on open water after a very long winter. Even managed a few rough fish to get warmed up for the year!  Video: https://youtu.be/0gYDiOVH3As

      Spending some time in the turkey blind as it’s on solid ground. Had some jakes behind me but they don’t want to play. It’s okay as the have a free pass for now. In a couple weeks they will not have a free pass. If they would have come out I would have taken some photos. Lots for noise as everything is excited by the warm weather.
